64-A Vaudville of the Mind:  A Theatre Project in New York, NY by Robert Prichard

 “64” is a vaudeville of the mind.

There is nothing that we say, do or think that stands alone in isolation. Any one thing leads to an infinity of possibilities. Our production explores these connections. Like fire flies ideas blaze, wink out and reappear again in other contexts. We have created a dream and you are invited to join us.

“64” began with photographs from the New York Times, that Brooklyn artistJennilie Brewster cut out, pasted onto canvas and painted over and transformed.

Texas playwright Timothy Braun was then inspired to write 64 one page plays: one for each painting. Like life, they are nonlinear or as one of the characters says “short on plot and long on character.”

Surf Reality producer Rob Prichard took Braun’s 64 plays and molded them into a single production, “64.” The result is a collage of painting, theater, music, sounds, animations and video.

Every creative contribution in “64” is another voice in a continuing conversation. Nobody here stands alone. The unknown NY Times photographers are linked to the actors on stage. Everything is connected: the sad with the sweet, and the funny with the brutal; no rain means no rainbow, no mud no lotus flower.

Our creative team is an extremely talented posse of actors, musicians and media artists. Tom Tenney designed the soundscape and mixes it live on stage. We have original music and songs by A Brief View of The Hudson and also by Sean T. HanrattyAshleigh Nankivell created our awesome animations. Paul Jones is designing our lights. Alex Brook Lynn with your support will create a short film. Please visit the links to their sites.

Our  incredible cast is Jim Melloan, Steph Sabelli, Noel Dineen, Lori McNally, Jeff Dickenson, and Diane O’Debra.

“64” has been accepted into the 2nd Annual RE/Mixed Media Festival this Oct. 22nd at One Armed Red Theater in DUMBO Brooklyn NY. We seek finanancial assistance for rehearsal and transportation costs, theater rental, props, lighting design, a short film and publicity for the performance on the 22nd  and for an additional three performances at One Armed Red Theater this fall.

  1. I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or
    2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
